Will the lip injections hurt? Will my lips swell too much after the treatment?

Injections in the lips can be uncomfortable depending on your sensitivity but for most patients it is painless. Our assistant shall do some icing on the part if u experience any discomfort, local anaesthesia is the last resort. There is a minimal swelling after the procedure which over 2-3 days will hardly be visible. Bruising also if any shall disappear in a day or so.

How long does the enhancement last?

The enhancement from Hyaluronic Acid Lip Fillers generally lasts for about 6 to 9 months or maximum upto 11 months depending upon your skin quality and how well u maintain it like adequate sun protection, etc. Since Hyaluronic Acid is completely absorbed and broken down by the body over a period of months, a re- treatment session is recommended every 9-10 months to maintain results.
